tradition has two very capable applicants. the bad news is, they will need to work together. rand paul and marco rubio are often pitted against one another competes for influence and authority, at times they seem to encourage this and may, in fact, end up competing in 2016. but their differences now and until then should be exploited in productive ways for the party that addressed those two deficiencies. paul's ayn randian highly intellectualized conservatism is informed by libertarian and federalist principles, not a visceral populist impulse or evangelical one. >> it is wrote that there can be no liberty if you combine the executive and the legislative branches. likewise, there can be no justice if you combine the executive and the judicial branch. >> and rubio's conservatism is emotional. channeling reagan, the son of the cuban bartender, he speaks the language of hardworking middle class immigrant america. >> we don't need a new idea. there is an idea. the idea is called america. and it still works. >> the question isn't whose vision of the future should conservatives adopt, but ho

. and after finishing first and second in the cpac shuffle, senators rand paul and marco rubio continued to jockey for the spotlight. paul threw his support mostly behind comprehensive immigration reform as he and rubio each did their best not to get ahead of each other on what the path to legalization might look like. [ speaking in foreign language ] i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrant. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million people like rand paul said today or give blanket amnesty or a special pathway to citizenship. what i've never been for is a special pathway to citizenship. >> i'm simply saying you can get a work visa and get in the normal line. >> the idle republican party announced rand paul will headline their annual fundraiser next month. rick santorum and wisconsin governor scott walker will also be in the hawkeye state in coming weeks. we also learned marco rubio's pac spent a hundred thousand dollars on campaign consultants just last month. new jersey governor chris christie says ohio senator ro

in the same tonal scale. if you look at cpac, i want to talk about the straw poll a little bit. rand paul won with 25% of the vote. marco rubio, at 23. rick santorum at 8 and chris christie at 7. i've maintained, and you're a national political reporter. the enthusiasm in and around rand paul is a coalition that is more dynamic than almost anything else the gop has. what are the implications of that in the next couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand an
gop senator. his message just wait until i have been here a whole year. plus rand paul sparks up the debate over legalizing marijuana. he makes a progressive argument better than progressives. later, come, rain snow, sleet, or sequester, the white house easter egg roll will go on. it's "the war room" on a monday and we will be right back. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com fruit just got cooler. fruit on one side, cool on the other. ice breakers duo a fruity cool way to break the ice. you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

, the winner of the cpac straw poll was a member of the paul family. rand paul was on top with 25% of the vote, his father, ron paul, won the cpac straw poll in 2010 and 2011. senator marco rubio placed second with 23%, and single digits support went to rick santorum, chris christie, paul ryan, scott walker, ben cars on, ted cruz, bobby jindal and sarah palin. joining us now, nbc analyst and mccain senior adviser, steve schmidt, analyst and obama re-election campaign adviser robert gibbs and huffington post editorial director howard fineman. robert gibbs, this is your debut performance on the last word. we have a motto that's very republican. it is not what you say but how you say it. keep that in mind. >> i have to say that lead in provides an exceedingly low bar for which i can roll right over. you know, chairman priebus may have cued it perfectly. >> months later, he figured it out. >> might have spent less paper figuring out the two or three things they did right in 2012 rather than all of what they did wrong. i think they have a herculian task on their shoulders because it isn't about how
spur to know us on -- one spur focusing on winning back minority voters. today, rand paul jumped on board. the winner of the cpac straw poll addressing the chamber of commerce in washington had to say. >> republicans need to become parents of a new future with latino voters or we'll need to resign ourselves to being a permanent minority status. republicans pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration. the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. my hope is today we begin a dialogue between g.o.p. and latinos. dialogue that shows the g.o.p. sees all immigrants as assets and that latinos can see the g.o.p. as party of opportunity. >> andrea: well, he is one of many who have turned their position toward a more forward-looking position on immigration reform. dana, this would be almost unthinkable. i think years ago your former boss came out and talked about immigration reform. a lot of folks on the right stayed away from it. they're all moving in that direction. politics or the right thing to do or both. >> da
of paul line situation where even though it's going to be in the bill, i wonder where the bill is going to get 60% and jam the action in the house. it's got to action or the house won't act. >> chris, the problem with the house majority, the republican majority is that, first of all, it's highly difficult to move those right wingers. they are all from safe districts. and so it is difficult to put pressure on them. i do think, however, it would be possible to embarrass john boehner into at least staging a vote. i remember president obama in his state of the union speech, don't the parents of newtown deserve a vote? don't the children of newtown deserve a vote? so let's at least force the house into an up and down vote on this bill. >> sam, will that work, that kind of an appeal? >> yes, it will work because a number of house republicans who ran in 2010, including some in pennsylvania, obviously representative griffin from staten island and representative peter king as well from new york. >> delaware county. >> exactly. >> they have to be careful. >> they do have to be careful. they have

lee. senator rand paul making some headlines today, now supporting a pathway to citizenship for the nation's estimated 31 million illegals -- 11 million illegals. it's a significant policy move, but the possible 2016 white house candidate also makes it clear that his plan does come with conditions. >> if you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. in order to bring conservatives to this cause, however, those who work for reform must understand that a real solution must insure that our borders are secure. we must also treat those who are here already with understanding and compassion without also unduly rewarding them for coming illegally. jenna: carl cameron is live in washington with more. so, carl, a lot of different plans floating around out there. i'm sure viewers have heard quite a few of them. how is this different from the other plans on the hill? >> reporter: in a couple of ways, and you were sort of talking about rand paul, a tea party favorite, a conservative kentucky senator, and it's also worth noting that there's
in the family. >> bill: yeah, and then they took their straw poll. this year rand paul won but barely, we got 25% of the vote. marco rubio 24%. and chris christie got 7% of the vote. what a bunch of losers. >> when you look at that list rand paul is one of the most extreme name on the list. but that's the crowd. that's the crowd. >> bill: yeah, far, far too much at attention to cpac. we're going to be talking to the public advocate for the city of new york later this hour. next hour the representative from the seere area club, and cindy will help us through our brackets. and bob portman creating a lot of buzz when he has a leading republican did a big flip flop on marriage equality. but first -- >> announcer: this is the "full court press." >> march madness now underway. the men's bracket is sweat games starting this thursday. noticeably absent from this year's bracket is last year's winner. >> bill: i'm working on my bracket now. >> bill: here it is. okay. do i have to fill this out before she gets here. >> no, you have time. she might be able to help you. >> bill:er don't nee

'm going to talk about rand paul with you for a moment. yesterday at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, let's listen to that. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. >> if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> now, there is one word that's an omission there. he does not mention the word citizenship. do you think he's parsing and picking his words wisely so not to put off conservatives? >> well, i think that rand paul has done a wonderful job of doing just that, alex. being nuanced in whether he's talking about drones, tax reform -- he's always been very nuanced to make sure he has -- and people starting to realize a wider vision for his own political career and that's exactly why he didn't mention specifically pathway to citizenship. what's interesting, though, prior to that a.p. story i can share with you that the chatter was he was going to talk about pathway to citizenship. so i might -- you know, the big question is, did he back away from that after he heard the chatter and heard that individuals were not welcoming it in the
senator and tea party fave rand paul. paul spoke this morning at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce setting a tone that reminded some of president george w. bush. >> i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in america then we will find a place for you. >> joining us right now for reaction to this and other news of the day of course is senator marco rubio, republican of florida. senator, thanks for joining us. what is your reaction to rand paul's announcement today? how important is this to the cause of immigration reform? >> well, first, thanks for having me on. i wish i had been on yesterday. i could have been the answer to a trivia question. anyway, on the senator paul's speech it is a very good development. there is a growing consensus that something needs to be done about immigration but it needs to be dmon a way that is responsible. in essence we need to do three things. number one we have to reform our legal immigration system. it needs to be moderniz
it was during the goldwater days. you're laying the groundwork for somebody like rand paul to win the iowa caucus us. chairman priebus made all the right recommendations. i would have gone further and said challenge your electorate. challenge your base. open up those primaries to independents. then you'll get republican candidates incentive to run to the center instead of to the right of rand paul. if those candidates win out you'll see democrats do very well in the midterms and four years. >> real quick guys, element number four of the cpac straw poll it puts rand paul in at 25%. marco rubio at 23%. so we have a leader there. our power panel, perry bacon, ben labolt, susan del percio. thank you. >>> university of central florida's main campus in orlando will reopen and classes will resume at noon eastern time. the campus was shut down, hundreds of students were evacuated after a body, weapons and explosives were found in a dorm room. authorities say the male found in this room appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. a handgun and explosive devices were found in that room
. they -- >> did you bring your gulp. >> they gave her votes in the straw poll to rand paul and right behind him to marco rubio. but sarah palin taking on karl rove in a thinly-veiled jibe at rove and rove come back on fox news. >> if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in that party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck, buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> if she can plan primaries other people can plan primaries. i don't think i'm a particularly good candidate, a balding foot phat guy and if i did run for office and win, i would serve out my term, i wouldn't leave office mid-term. >> ouch. >> is palin still a factor? she brought the crowd to their feet on saturday afternoon. >> i don't think she's a factor at all. i think she's just an amusing reality show to watch. >> she accused the president, she said that the white house is a reality show. this is a woman via mark burnett did her own reality show and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a
paul and marco rubio teaming up. rand paul to the intellect you'll voice of the party and marco rubio to the more emotional voice. chris christie can do something neither of them can do. this sort of no nonsense cut right to it. delivers a great punch line. tells it like it is. he has more flexibility to do that as governor. i think when you're in congress, you have to be a little more careful with your words but no one can do what chris christie does. we need him too. >> i think what you see is his strength as a candid candidate for a candid camera world. mitt romney had a lot of problems just being videoed, being himself. it was worse than the other problems he had which was not being himself. neither worked out very well. and chris christie does this thing, when he talks off the cuff. to kids or teachers or yelling at reporters, people love it. if you look on youtube at the viral videos, and he has created several. eight of the top ten are him being spontaneous. you can see, he says it is reprehensible. this is the crap i have to hear. >> how my uncle talk. >> what the hell are we
that go into some of the parties that the republican party has. you could have rand paul and senator cruz, other senator, luminaries talk about who's not with the party. and sending field reps there to work for weeks but they have to have policies that will be responsive, as well as the ground game, net game and money game. >> along with policies there's a communication thereof. and jackie, the first question to the rnc chair this morning was is this a communications problem? or a problem with policies of the republican party? and here's what he said. >> i think our policies are sound. but i think that, many ways, the way that we communicate can be a real problem. it's not about altering our principles. i think it's about the way we communicate and the way we welcome people into our party. >> welcoming and communicating. is that an accurate assessment here do you think? >> well, i think that one thing is important to say, and you illustrated it a little bit in those clips. the rnc has this plan out there now, you do have some people, a lot of people in the republican party that don't nece
on monday that endorsed comprehensive immigration reform and on tuesday rand paul of kentucky gave a speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce in which he sold his proposal for immigration reform by insisting that latinos are natural republicans. >> republicans have been losing both the respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with people of our beliefs, family, and conservative values. hispanics should be a natural and sizable part of the republican base. but they are steadily drifting away from the gop in each election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to
flat. nobody got it. >> two wig winners, rand paul and won the straw poll going away and receiving with his speech and marco rubio did really well. i think you see chris christie sitting there with 7% -- >> who? >> chris christie. >> he was not only excluded, he was insulted there by some extreme voice. >> insult chris christie, you only make him stronger. >> i know. ron, chris christie couldn't have had it any better. first of all, he didn't have to go to cpac and, secondly, he was on everybody's mind at cpac and, third, he fred ahead from the vice presidential nominee in the polling. all in all a big success. i would say the three big winners, rand paul and marco rubio and the guy who wasn't there, chris christie. >> i agree. the democratic party is always the worst three days of the year for the republican party when you have all of these whacko birds on the fringe fighting with each other. those are the three winners, i agree. chris christie is setting -- a nice position to be the one guy come out incredibly and a good place to be. i think jeb bush, mark is right. he fell flat
. >> bill: we have been told by jay carney that the questions raised by rand paul and others about drones and ron widen, are legitimate questions and the white house is pretty soon going to release its guidelines or policy on drones. is this move part of that do you believe? >> yeah, i think it is. john brennan is now the cia director, has over the past year or two been leading an internal process inside the administration to try to set rules and guidelines and really a process for the drone program going forward, and it's known internally as -- it's called the play book, the idea that they are devising a set, basically of rules, and it will bring more logic to the drone program. >> bill: yeah. >> and this is coming out of that process. >> bill: well, it's interesting that -- that john brennan, the architect of our drone program, once he gets to the cia, the first thing he says is i want to get rid of this hot potato right? >> yeah. >> bill: on domestic drones who is in charge of overseeing the exploding use of domestic drones by government agencies and universities a
rand paul of kentucky, fresh off of his big win at cpac straw poll he is going to be giving a big speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce where he is going to unveil his plan on immigration that will include a path to citizenship. >> bill: wow. talk about teeing himself up for 2016. >> oh yeah. he has made it very hard for immigrants -- >> bill: probably have to have an eye exam. [ laughter ] >> 20/20. >> yeah. >> i'll be curious to see how many republicans stand with rand on this issue? >> bill: kerry back to marriage equality, next tuesday and wednesday the supreme court will be hearing oral arguments on the two cases they have in front of them, doma and california's prop 8. we know how some of them are going to rule but will this rob portman and hillary clinton, and 80-some republicans signing an amicus brief do you think this all will have any impact on the supreme court? >> absolutely. they read the news like anybody else. at this point i think the politicians themselves areless important. but what is very important is public opinion. i'm not sayin
federal deficits in five years makes it imprudent to jump in with both feet. consider on tuesday paul endorsed a version of immigration reform that would allow the 11 million or so undocumented immigrants in this country to become legal. the week before he defied the hawks in his party to lead a 13-hour filibuster in protest of the obama admission's secretory over its drone war fare program. >> dan senor, you've been involved in republican presidential primaries lately. sorry about that. how would those issues stack up in new hampshire and iowa and south carolina and florida? >> i think the politics, his politics on pure fiscal issues will have tremendous resonance as his father experienced in some primary states and caucus states. i think what is untested is -- from a -- from a political standpoint is his position on foreign policy. his father never really broke through on the neoisolationist politics at the grassroots level beyond a narrow segment of the electorate. rand who i've spent time talking about these issues is much salvier than his father. >> his father blamed in effect u.
of marco rubio and rand paul, two very different types. are they really the future of the party or are they just the flavor of the week while the party tries to get itself together? >> i think they're the flavor of the week. quite frankly, if i were rand paul and marco rubio, i'd be worried for peaking way too soon. chances are that there are going to be people that come out november where. as a matter of fact, there's one who's already starting to make noise, a neurosurgeon with no experience in politics named ben carson. he's the kind of person that normally ends up being the nominee of the party. you don't have to look any further back than to the democrats. remember when barack obama was somebody nobody knew? >> right. doesn't seem like that languaon. now let's switch to the president's trip to the middle east. how effective have obama and bb been in warming up the relationship? >> all of a sudden, they've become bffs which is strange considering where they came from. but they're making an effort to try and look like they're marching in lock step which is probably a serious
from the national chairman. one of the interesting things that happened, in recent months, paul ryan, marco rubio, bobby jindal, scott walker, a number of other party leaders, have come forward with very interesting speeches, talking about the future of the party. i think this is a constructive process and i see a lot coming out of it. one strand in most of these speeches, the republican party has to change from being a party of green eye shades to being a party that stands as a party that emphasizes economic growth and prosperity. that allows us to make our argument in every corner of america in a powerful way. an coming from voices, like from bobby jindal and marco rubio gives us greater credibility. >> look, i think there are great things in that report and i think it got it right on the tactics. and i agree with karl. the problem is, and this the entire point, they didn't lose 72% of latino votes because of tactics. and they didn't lose women by double digit because of tactics, outreach, they lost it because they're wrong on the issues. they no longer speak to a majority of ameri
, almost every single republican in the house voted for paul ryan's budget. the budget that would lower taxes for the rich, cut programs for the poor, and end medicare as we know it. it's unbelievable just three days ago the rnc rolled oh ut a plan to reboot the party, claiming that they will change the public's view that they only care about the rich. >> the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately, continues to grow. that's frustrating. we want to lift people up from poverty. >> lift people up out of poverty? really? what about voting for ryan's budget today, republicans endorsed a plan to give every millionaire in the country a $200,000 tax cut. while slashing the safety net for the poor. doesn't sound like change to me. republicans claim they want to expand the big tent of the party. >> no words in telling us that we have to be more inclusive. i agree. >> more inclusive? really? than why did a leading gop senator say this when asked about marriage equality? quote, i'm not guy so i'm not going to marry one. doesn't sound like change to me. republicans claim they are
-- jon: florida senator marco rubio. >> yes. rand paul has come out with his own proposal, he did a speech before the chamber of commerce. but this is an issue where my party can come together and actually be leaders, and i think right now the diversity in the party might be tearing it down. jon: well, okay, that was the question. you mentioned three potential presidential candidates -- [laughter] potential republican standard bearers in the next election, in 20 -- >> 2016. but it's -- jon: marco rubio -- >> yes. >> rand paul, jeb bush -- >> yes. jon: and each of them is sort of criticizing the other's immigration plan. >> and united we stand, divided we fall. 2016 is an eternity away. i understand that self-preservation is the first law of nature, but right now we need to bring our country together, and this is an issue that will maybe help jeb, rand paul or rubio gain more hispanic support when they do decide to run. jon: well, and there wasn't a lot of hispanic support the last time around -- >> not for mitt romney. jon: about 30% as compared with 70% for president obama. >> ri

was inspirational. he will have a different message. rapid paul, marco rubio, take your pick. somebody like that is much more inspir rationm than mitt romney was. >> the whole relationship to corporate america has to shift. romney's image is a rich guy, stuffy guy. they have to get in touch that you can be critical to corporate america and relate to main stream america. >> we need a good candidate but you need a party that knows how to trun mechanics. that is the job of the rnc. >> that is it for the panel. but stay tuned for new effort of diplomacy with north korea to diffuse some of those threats. to take the next step. today, y will know you did something for your pain. cymbalta can help. cymbalta is a pain reliever fda-approved to manage chronic musculoskeletal pain. one non-narcotic pill a day, every day, can helpeduce this pain. tell your doctor right away if your mood worsens, you have unusual changes in mood or behavior or thoughts of suicide. anti-depressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. cymbalta inot for children under 18. people taking maois, linezolid
the curtain column you say the gop now belongs to senators marco rubio and rand paul. how so? >> you might as well call it the rand/rubio party, because the energy, the excitement and the power in the republican party is now outside washington and the clearest place to see this is on immigration. on the show in last couple of days we have seen senator rand paul moving toward friendliness of immigration reform and marco rubio in the past has expressed support for it. if they come out with tough, real immigration reform is how it will get to the president's desk. if they are for it, house republicans who are still reluctant are not going to want to get to the right of them. a sign of resistance there is still in the house, house republican that we talked to said there is a hispanics panic among the party elite donors and leaders and take senator paul and rubio to bring them along. >> hispanics paunnic? one way to put it. >> we have this brown guy running in georgia. he is the one that says barack obama follows the soviet constitution! >> soviet constitution? >> not even the russian constitut
but also marco rubio, you mentioned. rand paul is going may be a candidate. i think at some point for the top spot but the second part, senator from new hampshire and governor chris christie, if he gets re-elected is going to be a player if he wants to be a player. >> greta: do you see a bigger role for the people that identify themselves as tea party candidates or do you think that freshly in light of the recent rnc report certain things like suggesting perhaps fewer debates which may be more difficult for less well known candidate. what do you see looking into the future? >> a dozen debates is going to be adequate for anybody to get known. 22 hurt the republican party. chairman priebus is right. we ought to limit the number of debates. it's what the democrats did to minimize the damage to them from putting anchors in charge in unscripted events. it really hurt on our side because most of anchors were happy to pick the republicans, not concerned with jobs, economy and deficit and healthcare but considered with every weird social issue or recent statement by somebody they could dr
to vole. we just want them in general. now the rand paul people are fighting back. we seem them at places like that, trying to marginalize progressive reporters, so it's really kin of a strange strategic thing they have themselves caught betwixt and between. i find it kind of amusing. >>> let me ask you a question closer to home, just between you and i. >> just between you and i. i understand. this is the kind of pastor/parishioner privilege going on here? >> that's correct. >> just talking among ourselves. >> that's correct. >>> is hillary going to run? >> well, let me put it this way. i have never heard a democrat -- and i've been around the country a lot. first, i've never ahead a democrat sake, you know, i really miss bush, and the second thing, i hope hillary doesn't run. i think if she knew the amount of support she has out there, i think most democrats would like to see her run. i certainly hope so, but, you know, if the power of me hoping, and i'm going to hold my breath. i'm going to -- i really do want her to run. you've got to give her a chance to recoup. she's worked real hard
then to jake. when you look at the cpac, right, and the straw poll that came out of that, you had rand paul winning with 25%, right behind was marco rubio, something like 23%. and you had contra ticker to me contradictory messages. again, polar opposites on the state of the republican party.t contradictory messages. again, polar opposites on the state of the republican party. >> they do disagree especially when it comes to national defense and international relations. but that is clearly where the energy is in the republican party right now. the tea party republicans, the libertarian republican, and that is why there was so much energy and excitement around individuals like marco rubio and rand paul and it would be interesting to see how much the republican party, the establishment republican party that is very wary of the libertarian philosophy, especially when it comes to same-sex marriage, especially when it comes to international policy, and the establishment party that is wary of the tea party in many ways because of the difficulty they've had controlling their unruly tea party republi
party that i think will be helpful. if you look at marco rubio, paul ryan, kelly ayotte, some of our governors from a clear generational shift going on in the republican party moving forward, democrats may want to reach back. kasich's numbers have been rising dramatically, where he is certainly not upside down. >> i have a couple minutes for last questions, and we will try to have swift answers. >> now that the elections are over, we really need government to work for us. as political strategists, is there a chance that compromise can be commendable -- can compromise be commendable and not an election year liability? >> i work for ronald reagan. he compromised on everything. we had a democratic house with a huge majority. he had to. the real divided government can work. ronald reagan proved it could work. clinton proved it could work. those are guys who got huge legislation enacted. the reagan economic plan, immigration reform, social security reform -- here is the thing -- the president has got to lead. for four years we have had a president was not willing to take that kind of lead
